Pulse grading resources from Making the Grade 2020 FEB 21 2020 | Producers | Blog Post

This week’s Making the Grade was once again a sold out event. This workshop brings keen and interested farmers, grain buyers, agronomists and others in the industry together to learn about grading of wheat, barley, canola and pulse crops. This year, APG’s Nevin Rosaasen along with Tyler Schmidt from Cotecna took participants through grading of peas, faba beans and red lentils. The following are helpful resources for past participants and those interested in knowing more on grading pulses. Other links include disease, root rots, pea leaf weevil and storage info. Any further questions can be directed to nrosaasen@albertapulse.com.
